Emerging from a silent space of time
all the signs read themselves differently.

According to Genesis 1:26, ‘God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness’; according to Xenophanes of Colophon, mortals portray their gods as like themselves. Could they both be right?
As God has wished that the inner person be created to be like God, so also earthly people create gods in their own image.
